Sony Computer Entertainment America (SCEA) has confirmed that it will be releasing a 160GB PlayStation 3 bundle featuring Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune in November 2008.

Set to retail for USD 500, the bundle contains a copy of the action-adventure title from Naughty Dog, along with a single DualShock 3 pad.



SCEA boss Jack Tretton commented: “As Playstation Network continues to evolve with our recently launched video delivery service and more exclusive games, PS3 owners are demanding more storage capacity.”

“Consumers also are utilizing PS3 as an entertainment hub for their digital media, placing content such as their entire music collection on the hard drive. The 160GB PS3 system addresses this growing consumer demand in a compelling bundle that delivers significant value.”

I think it would have been better if they included LBP rather than a fairly old game and Pain...but that's just my opinion.

So do I wait until november and buy a 160gb PS3 with Uncharted. Or do I buy an 80gb now right when LBP comes out?

I can't decide.

If they're going for the same price, I would personally go with the Uncharted bundle. You'll need that extra hard drive space if you're planning ahead for the long term.

Problem #1. LBP comes out before that, and I'm pretty much buying  PS3 just to play it, so I would like to have it on day one.

Problem #2. I'm going around the world for 6 months come January, so buying one in November wouldn't give me much time to play anything

Not really a Problem #3. Most people who were planning ahead for long term bought an 80gb, I don't see why I would need double that.

If your really just buying a PS3 for LBP, then it's an obvious choice. So go with the LBP bundle, however you should pick up a copy of Uncharted aswell, it's probably my fav PS3 game, had more fun with it than MGS4.

It is. If you could be bothered going through all the trouble you could always import. I wouldn't go through the hassle to be honest, you could just pick up a 40GB at your local GameStop, buy a copy of LBP and by the time you've finished having fun you'll be having more fun going around the world.

I guess I'd be all over it if I didn't have the best version of the console already.
